There is this Gene Wolfe book that I received from roseandsigil just before the end of his most recent pittsburgh visit, which I understand to be owned by pluralofplural. It is called "The Fifth Head of Cerberus", and has three novellas in it, "The Fifth Head of Cerberus", "'A Story' by John V. Marsch" and "V.R.T.". Have read the first two, just started on the third. Really don't quite understand what's going on all the time, but they're very good somehow nonetheless.
